"The original Broadway production of Oklahoma! solidified musical theatre as a permanent art form," says Brian Roberts, Theatre Company director. "The show has been loved by audiences everywhere ever since. The Theatre Company is delighted to celebrate the 70-year tradition of Oklahoma! with our own energetic production featuring an amazing group of Tulare County students." Popular songs from the musical include "Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin'," "Kansas City," "People Will Say we're in Love," "The Surrey with the Fringe on Top," and "Oklahoma!" The original Broadway production ran for an unprecedented 2,212 performances, later enjoying award-winning revivals, national tours, foreign productions and an Academy Award-winning 1955 film adaptation.
